Lenovo Vibe X3 Review: Price Specs Pros and Cons

Lenovo cutting its price for the Flagship Smartphones. Company also believe in selling huge number of units in low marginal profit like Xiaomi. On its most popular Vibe series, company unveiled the Lenovo Vibe X3  with  substantial features such as Snapdragon 808, 5.5 inches IPS display, 21 & 8 MP camera with 4K video recording, 32/64 GB ROM, 128 GB External SD card support, 3 GB RAM and 3500 mAh battery. Here we will have Short review, Pros and Cons of Lenovo Vibe X3.

Design and Build
The body design is slightly curved as the result its thickness varies from 3.4mm to 9.3mm, such kind of design is helpful for the holding device with minimum chances of slippery from hands; body is made of aluminium. With 175 grams of weight phone is quite heavier. There are Dual stereo speakers firing from top front and bottom front remind us HTC design. The power and volume buttons are on the right, SIM tray on the left, 3.5mm audio jack on top  and There's a Micro-USB port on the bottom which also support reverse charging- means you can use the handset as power bank.
Display Quality
We love its 5.5 inches display emitting balanced brightness; featuring 1080 x 1920 pixels resolutions and 401 ppi display density. There is complaint related to display about the Yellow patch on bottom near home button but this problem is only associated with few faulty handsets. Although phones is able to manage a wide viewing angles and sunlight visibility pretty well. This pleasing display is shield by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Capture the Moment
On megapixel count phone loaded with 21 MP camera with f/2.0 aperture which can also shoot 4K videos, the camera is quite decent but we can’t say that it is best in its class; you will have good quality photos in daylight which you can save as past memories, we have also noticed that photo colour is slightly dull as compare to their natural colour. The same case applied for the 8 MP front camera which is sensitive to low light.

CPU Performance
Performance of the phone depends on the CPU and here Lenovo offering Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 processor that has hexa-cores and 1.8 GHz clock speed. Preinstalled UI is pretty smooth while there is also single page UI option. The phone do not struck in multitasking and it works quite smooth while jumping from one app to other app.

Battery Backup 
The phone battery 3500 mAh appears enough to deliver a good battery backup but unfortunately it is not capable to maintain an impressive battery backup. Using the phone heavily causes its battery backup down in less than 1 day.
